by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Your story is more that just a little unsettling. It's hard to categorize what you dealt with because it doesn't fit within the confines of child abuse. Don't get me wrong. You were assaulted. And harassed, way beyond bullying. He violated and threatened you. All illegal acts, even from a minor. And you are unlikely his first or last victim.

You need to tell a counsellor at school. Your teachers and principal need to know what this boy is doing, because he is capable of much more assaultive behaviour. What he is doing, or at least what he has done, is frightening. Try not to compare what happened to you at the hands of this deviant boy with what others have experienced and shared on this site. What you experienced was terrifying. And I'm deeply concerned that your mother would so quickly brush off what your friend and her mother were so worried about, and had every reason to be worried.

Issy, please tell an adult at school what you experienced with this boy, even if it's no longer happening. He must be stopped, and you have it in your power to start that process. He is well on his way to raping someone, if he hasn't already done so. The fact that he continued this assaultive behaviour throughout the school term tells me that he's used to getting away with it. Unless someone steps up and doesn't let him get away with it, he will not stop. And it will escalate. For someone. Don't carry this alone, Issy. Telling your story here was a first step. Now it's time to reach out for help from someone who can actually help. A trusted adult in your school or church. And failing that, especially as it seems you can't talk to your mother, contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) . You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: https://www.childhelp.org/hotline/

Treat yourself with the dignity and respect you deserve, Issy. Talk to someone who can help.

I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Assaulted in School
by: Carol

Oh my Issy, this should not be happening to you. This is serious. He is assaulting you and wherever you live, this should be illegal. The fact that he is so brazen and does it in class makes it clear that you should never find yourself alone anywhere with him. How does your teacher allow this kind of behavior? Please tell someone, your teacher, counselor, principal....please, I hope there is someone you can trust. Your mother needs to take you seriously. Get upset! Get angry! Be strong! Yell at him in class if he continues. Don't take it sitting down! Refuse to be in the class if he is there. What he is doing is degrading you as a person - the guy needs to be expelled. He's a bully of the worst kind. If he is allowed to continue he will continue and other girls will be assaulted and raped. Please get help right away.
